POLLUX's NOTES:

This is a concept e.p (inspired by "Casio XXXL" from Toxic Chicken)
Alone with my synth, a Roland Alpha Juno 2 (Vintage 80's synth), and recorded improvisations, experiments,
or just feelings...so what I wanted to do in the moment. (I've never really play synth or piano, but I don't care
about that, just feelings, experimentations, and worked on the parameters.
Created in the evening, Tracks are in the same order that original recording.
There is no mix...this is recorded Live, directly from the synth (no mixtable, programs...)


Roland Alpha Juno 2:

"This is an upgraded version of the Alpha Juno 1. It adds an extended 61 note keyboard with velocity
and aftertouch and an external memory cartridge slot. Other than that it has the same great sound and
features as the Juno 1.
Sliders and buttons were replaced by membrane buttons and the Alpha Dial which is used to edit and
browse through the extensive selection of parameters: DCO digitally controlled oscillators, LFO, bend, ENV,
pulse, waveforms, noise, PW/PWM, high pass filter, VCF filter with freq/env/res/lfo/kybd, VCA envelope, chorus,
and more.

Adequate in the studio or on the stage, the Juno 2 has 64 presets and 64 user memory patches, a nice LCD display,
an LFO capable of a very slow rate for some cool sweeping effects, and a great bass sound
(especially nice for acid basslines) and noise effects! It also has chord memory which is perfect for rave & techno,
portamento and keyboard transposing. The PG-300 Synthesizer Programmer gives you traditional slider control of
each parameter for much easier and faster editing. The Alpha Junos have been used by Mundo Muzique,
Vince Clarke, Matt Megaton Haines, Paul Hardcastle, Fatboy Slim, Massive Attack, Bomb the Bass, The Prodigy,
Faithless, Youth, Joey Beltram and Human Resource."
